Guidelines for Issued Cards
Please notify the library if your card is lost or stolen so that you are not held responsible for any material other might check out on your account. We will place a block on your card so that it cannot be used.
If you change your name or address, please notify the library immediately or login to your account and make the changes online.
Library cards expire every two years. Renewing your card is free but requires verifying contact information.
If you do not have your library card with you, you will need to present identification in order to check out materials.
